Hi Sandra.

I'm writing today to let you know that it's now been two months since I received the Contreras C5 from Stafford Guitar, and that I am absolutely pleased with the guitar. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to play it until mid-January because I sprained my hand over the holidays.

Hi Adrian and Selina.

Hope you are well and are having / had a great holiday.

Just to let you know that my guitar has overwhelmed all expectations! I am able to play pieces that I have struggled with for years e.g Barrios "allegro solemnis". I know that a bad workman shouldn't blame his tools but in this case it is true : my old guitar simply wasn't a quality instrument like the one I now possess. So once again many thanks to yourselves and Sandra for your help and advice. Many thanks.

Best wishes,

John.

Adrian,

Just a note to say thanks very much for the time you spent in helping me choose a new guitar the other week. Although my purchase was fairly modest (Contreras C7 in the end, after much indecision on my part !) I never felt rushed or pressured, which is the ideal situation when making a decision which you're going to be living with for a number of years in all probability.

Adrian,

I found the Stafford Guitar web site about 12 months ago and have 'studied' its every page since. I am a returning guitarist, who played to a reasonable standard through the ABRSM grades back in 1985. For many reasons I stopped playing but lately wondered if I could retrain that once reasonable musical ear !!

Hello Adrian,

Well I have nearly owned it for 24 hrs and I can say that we are quickly bonding. After a nervous start in your studio and the guitar feeling a little alien - it has quickly become a part of me! Fantastic tone and balance. Perfectly in tune all the way up the neck. Beautiful clarity and quite sonorous. I look forward to growing with this guitar.

Hello.

You probably don't remember me. My name is Colin, and I purchased a Contreras from you earlier this year. You said at the time to keep in touch and let you know how I was getting on with it. Just to remind you i have to teach myself, so progress is sometimes slow. That said, however, I just thought I'd let you know that your advice was brilliant. I've recommended you to everyone I know, and the guitar itself is so beautiful, that I'm doing very well with it.

She has settled down now and the strings have stopped stretching. What an incredible sound! Such tone! Great and very solid bass response, wonderfully clear and sweet trebles. Wonderfully easy to play, even at the standard string height with the standard bridge. Thanks for sending the spare bridge. I don't think I'll need it though. You can really see the attention to detail in the build, although I still feel that the Aram guitar can't be bettered for workmanship. Thanks once again for all your help and advice with this guitar, and also to Selina for her input.

Hello,

Thanks again to every one at Stafford Guitar, my Contreras C5 arrived safely, not surprisingly when you consider how well packed she was. Although I didn't have that long to play her last night, I can say that the Contreras C5 spruce has exceeded my expectations, lovely rosewood back and sides and a clear voice.

Guitar is excellent. Am loving doing even the simplest first lessons. Beautiful sound, excellent workmanship. My friend who "plays" the guitar will never speak to me again when he sees it!!!!!

Hi Adrian,

I have had time now to overcome some of my rustiness and the Contreras C1 has more than met my expectations. I don't have very much to add to the description, as most everything I might have to say has been covered either by you or your customers.
